My thoughts : This is the 4th book in the DCI Heatherall series and sadly I’ve not read the first 3 but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment of this book and I will be going back and reading the series from the beginning.
I really enjoyed this murder mystery, it’s quite different to my usual reads and was a really nice change. As the description says a young social worker is found murdered and DCI Peter Hetheral and his partner Fiona Wilson are on the hunt for the murderer but nothings quite straight forward and each time I thought I knew who it was, I found out I was wrong. The characters are great and I particularly liked Dick and Gladys, there were quite a few laugh out loud moments with that pair.
This is a really well written story that has attention to detail which bring the characters and story to life. It starts off grabbing your attention and holds it all the way through the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m really looking forward to catching up with the series and also finding out what’s in store for DCI Hetheral in the future.
